The fellowship will take place at the Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service, New York University, New York (NY); United States. The school’s admissions committee will prefer to choose women who can demonstrate commitment to public service,m who possess strong academic record, and for whom a Wagner education would significantly enhance their ability to have a deep and lasting impact on public service issues in their home country and region.
The Oprah Winfrey Foundation has opened the African Women Public Service Masters Fellowship. The program offers postgraduate master and executive master level support to eligible women from Africa. It expands the opportunity and makes it possible for women in these resource-poor settings to attend the New York University Wagner Institution, which offers an exceptional program to help women expand their Public Service in their home countries.
ALL applicants are expected to return to their respective home countries at the conclusion of the program with the goal of assuming a leadership position on the continent where they can meaningfully contribute to the challenges currently confronting Africa.
